Bitwarden password manager comes to the Microsoft Store

Bitwarden has had a Microsoft Edge extension available for several months now, but the password manager is also now available as a standalone app for Windows 10 on the Microsoft Store (via Windows Latest).

If you're familiar with other password managers, such as Dashlane and 1Password, then Bitwarden will look pretty familiar. The app lets you securely store your passwords and other data, sync your vault across devices, and generate strong and secure passwords. There are also options to securely share logins with other people, and the app can work in concert with the Edge browser extension to auto-fill logins on websites.

According to Bitwarden, your logins are stored in an encrypted vault so that only you can access the information. The app is open source software, and your data is stored with AES-256 bit encryption, salted hashing, and PBKDF2 SHA-256.

If you want to give Bitwarden a shot, you can pick the app up now for free on the Microsoft Store.

Thanks, Akhilesh, for the tip!
